StarMed to reduce COVID-19 testing sites after contract ends with NC

CHARLOTTE — North Carolina’s contract with StarMed Healthcare for COVID-19 testing sites has come to an end, Channel 9 has learned.

StarMed says that means the total number of its testing sites will be reduced.

However, the health care provider plans to keep giving people access to COVID-related services at no cost -- including people who are uninsured.

StarMed is also now a community access point for at-home tests. Right now, people can visit the west and east Charlotte locations to pick up 10 free at-home COVID tests.
